  • Are these spider mites?

    Posted by linkieg on October 7, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    Hi everyone. I am a first time grower experimenting before I spend money on decent clones or seeds. I started noticing very fine powdery white spots on two of my indoor plants. I got a bit concerned when they looked rather alive under closer inspection with my microscope. A few friends have suggested that they may be spider mites but have not suggested what I should do about them. The plants are about six to eight weeks into flowering.

    Any advice would be greatly appriciated.

    At this point I would only recommend using something like high ph water then high airflow in the room to avoid bud rot or get in there with a shop vac to remove them manually. It looks like webbing but the color of those bugs don’t look like the typical spider mite to me. The images are kind of hard to tell for sure, but it does look like webbing
